Short of breath, soreness in chest and back when I take deep breath

Short of breath, soreness in chest and back when take deep breath? I am resorting to this because I have been to so many doctors. I have seen an internal med and cardiologist. I have shortness of breath that come and goes. I have a soreness in my back and chest that is especially noticable when I stand up or turn over in bed. Feels like my inner chest and inner back of some of soreness that typicallly relieves after stretching it out (taking deep breaths to cause the pain) I don t smoke at all, never have.

Try running or a treadmill. You need to pump some air through your body.

Hi, I m feeling some pain in my chest and trachea. the pain worsens when I lay down at night and not much pain during the day. When I take deep breaths it hurts my chest sometimes. Sometimes I get pain on the top of my back and it travels to the front. I ve attempted twice to use my heating pad. It helps for a short period of time then the pain comes back. Don t know what to do, please help.

Age: 43 Female Heart murmur (innocent). One kidney (donor - 11 years ago). I often have back pain (lower) from lifting special needs son. In the last few months I ve had pain between the shoulder blades. One morning, very early (maybe 3 am), it felt like my heart was going to jump out of my chest with very strong flutter. Later that morning I had a squeezing sensation around my ribs that happened over about 30 seconds and lasted an hour before it slowly went away. Remained a bit sore for a couple of days. I wasn t doing anything other than standing at the time. Another time, I was washing my hair in the sink when it felt like I pulled a muscle between my shoulder blades. Slow, gradual pain - lasted for days and it was uncomfortable to take even a slightly deep breath. I have had on and off discomfort between my shoulder blades since. I do have a high stress life with a chronically ill son, and I have trouble sleeping more than 5 hours at night due to back pain and general anxiety. My worry is the pain between my shoulder blades. Is it common to pull muscles there? I hear so much about different symptoms of a heart attack for women. I do get extremely tired by mid day, could doze off just sitting on the couch (I have, actually). But I contribute this to lack of sleep. I ve had my blood pressure checked more than once over the past year. First time it was borderline hypertension, the second time it was something like 110/72. This has been the pattern for me. Higher blood pressure one day, far better a few months later. No obvious reason why.

I am a 57 year old woman. I have hypertension well controlled with prescription meds for 2 years. recently I went for routine exam, doc asked me whether I had shortness of breath, irregular heart beats, lightheadedness, or left arm tingling. No to all of the above. Why did doc recommend echo stress? BTW: my results came back normal (Thank goodness!), yet now I have a $9,000 bill for a test that was normal. Could any other test have been done as a heart function screen before the echo stress?

I have had breathing problems come up in the past month & 1/2 when doing much walking & small things. I have shortness of breath where I have to breath through my mouth to get enough air. I went to a heart Dr. & he said all sounds good then he had me go to a lung Dr. that now wants to have me do a sleep test. I only had about 5 of the sleep questions in minimal & that s only because I have a bad hip that wakes me up at night. I told her this but she still wants the sleep study. I want a second opinion, am I wrong ?
